Dark Side by Orlando Arocena

Welcome to the Dark Side of the Force courtesy of the vector-based wizardry of Poster Posse member Orlando Arocena.  



We have last checked vector-based graphic wizard Orlando Arocena with his collaborative take on Alejandro González Iñárritu's Birdman with fellow artist Patrick Seymour. With the release of Arocena's latest solo print, a disturbance was definitely picked in The Force. Entitled "Dark Side", Arocena focused on the dynamically dark duo of Emperor Palpatine and Lord Darth Vader.



At Arocena's Bahance page, the artist have the following to say on his latest print:

Out of all the Starwars movies, Empire Strikes Back is my ultimate favorite. We get introduced to the Emperor, Boba Fett, and get a front row seat to experiencing the Power of the Dark Side. There’s one particular scene where I believe the Art Direction /set design/ lighting is just phenomenal! Where Vader trys out his Carbonite toy on Han Solo….The emphasis on Tech Deco and the extreme cool / hot tones makes it a visual feast for the eyes.

The one scene that has stuck with me all these years and my favorite portrayal of SINISTER has to be the sequence of the carbonite smoke billowing upward and revealing the ominous Vader ( 1:50 video below ). Well, creatively I wanted to capture and embellish upon these elements with a vector pop deco tribute. Cheer and enjoy~ 

And here are some glimpses into the process of the work followed by both edition of the print.
Both editions of the print are available right here.
